Experience
The Forest


Bright luminous creatures soar through a majestic forest, which is also the home to larger-than-life bugs, flowers and a stunning 80-foot snake. The Firefly Boy glides and dives as he performs aerial acrobatics and makes a special connection with the Twin Sister when she plummets from the flying bird into his world. The Forest People are agile high in the trees performing on bungees and swing poles, which combines traditional Chinese poles with the flying trapeze. (The "trees" here are made of corrugated steel tube. Each has a diameter of four feet and is up to 80 feet tall, and weighs up to 3,000 pounds.)

Hanging vine-like structures and columns fly into place from the wings. They evoke the lush foliage of a dense forest canopy. The Firefly Boy swings in the air and performs an aerial straps routine. Meanwhile Forest men are swaying and jumping from large swinging Chinese poles and creatures descend on the large columns, among them a giant winding snake.

The Twin Girl appears to have fallen from the Mountain men's Bird and we see her falling through the forest canopy. She is rescued by the Firefly Boy.
